If you’re unfamiliar with millet, let me introduce you.
Millet is an ancient grain with more fiber and protein than wheat flour and is 100 percent gluten-free.
These millet flour recipes are a great way to indulge in gluten-free treats, from pancakes to snickerdoodles, without the guilt.
The flavor of millet in these millet flour recipes adds a cornmeal-like sweetness.
It’s the perfect gluten-free flour for anything from cookies, sandwich bread, and crackers.
Check out these recipes below to infuse ancient grain goodness into your bakes!
1. 100% Millet Sandwich Bread

It incorporates millet flour to boost fiber and a subtle hint of sweetness.
It has a closed, dense texture that feeds hearty and filling.
The best part about this millet loaf is that it’s 100 percent vegan!
It includes simple ingredients such as baking soda and powder, sea salt, water, vinegar, and whole psyllium husks. That’s it!
The finished product has a deliciously crunchy crust and a slightly sweet fine texture inside.
It’s great for sandwiches, but it also makes one mean piece of toast.
2. Sweet Potato Millet Pancakes
These sweet potato millet pancakes will satisfy your sweet tooth in the morning without a lot of added sugar.
The sweetness from the millet combined with sweet potatoes makes this pancake batter naturally sweet and tasty.

3. Millet Sweet Corn Fritters
Millet sweet corn fritters are perfect for summer.
They’re deep-fried to golden perfection and go great with fresh summer herbs.

4. Any Flour Yeast-Free, Sugar-Free Crackers
Buying gluten-free crackers at the grocery store is highway robbery.
They’re costly, but you can quickly whip them up at home for a fraction of the price.
The best part? You can flavor your crunchy crackers however you like!
While the base recipe calls for millet, salt, and oil (it’s so easy to whip together), you can get creative with the seasoning.
If you want plain crackers, leave out the seasoning.
Add garlic, curry, ginger, cayenne pepper, or dill for an extra kick of flavor.
5. Millet Almond Butter Waffles
Millet makes fantastic waffles! They’re light and fluffy like traditional waffles, with an added flavor boost from natural sweeteners.

These waffles utilize naturally sweet ingredients such as bananas, vanilla almond milk, and almond butter.
They’re so good, you might not need maple syrup!
Almond milk and butter offer subtle nutty flavors and boost protein levels in these waffles without needing a drop of dairy (or oil).
6. Millet “Corn” Bread Muffins
Nothing beats a hot cornbread muffin, but cornmeal isn’t exactly healthy.
Swap cornmeal with millet, and it tastes almost like the real thing.
Even though millet does contain corn, it has a very subtle sweet flavor, similar to cornmeal.
That’s why millet works so well in these faux cornbread muffins!

7. Millet Biscuits (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)
If you’re on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet, fluffy biscuits are likely on your no-fly list.
However, with simple swaps in the diary department, biscuits are back on the menu!
Millet flour is a great biscuit flour alternative because it provides a subtle sweetness.
Plus, it’s a good source of fiber and protein.
Paired with vegan buttermilk, eggs, and vegan butter, they burst off your baking sheet in the oven.
Keep in mind that while they’re dairy-free, they aren’t vegan.
